Winners have the option to receive their winnings in 30 annual installments or as a one-time cash payment of around $450 million.

“Probably try to set my family up for life, my wife and I, we work our butts off but we don’t have high-income jobs so with us maybe do fun stuff, traveling and things like that. Setting my kids up, I got two kids a little boy and a little girl I would set up with college and things like that,” said Ryan Burridge.

“Lot of charities, especially with animals and children’s needs. Lots of hospitals I would give to, St. Jude’s and stuff like that,” said Francis Filchock. “You don’t win unless you play!”

The Powerball numbers are drawn every Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday.
